In time of turmoil, Sun ramping up HPC efforts
Sun’s Marc Hamilton wrote on his blog last week about changes lined up for the HPC team there
Later this month, we will be announcing the newest upgrades to the Sun Constellation System line, providing significant new performance boosts not only in CPU power, but in storage and networking performance. We have already sold PetaFlops of Sun Constellation Systems attached to PetaBytes of storage. Now we’ve put together a global HPC Sales team to help bring Sun Constellation System to an event broader set of commercial, education, and research HPC customers, and I’m really excited to be leading that new team.
So a hardware refresh and a reinvigorated (possibly larger?) sales team. Marc’s post also has a video introducing the changes he has planned for the new organization.
